Combination passenger reading light and air ventilator
A combination orientable light and ventilating fixture includes a support
and a ball housing adjustably mounted therein, the ball housing including
front and rear openings and an inner chamber. A socket assembly for an
electric lamp is mounted on the housing behind the rear opening and held
in spaced relationship from the housing. A bezel element is removably
secured to the ball housing at the front opening. A plenum or equivalent
arrangement may be mounted on the rear of the support to cover the socket
assembly and the rear opening of the ball housing, so that air may pass
through the plenum and ball housing. A reflector for the electric lamp is
securable to the removable bezel element at any of a plurality of
locations axially within the chamber of the ball housing, so that its
position relative to the electric lamp may be selected to vary the
divergence of light emanating from the fixture. The bezel element may
include an inner shield integral therewith and adapted to intercept a
portion of light produced by the lamp, to eliminate glare. Various further
structural arrangements are provided to permit increased angular movement
of the housing relative to the opening axis, to provide a limit to such
angular movement, and to facilitate removal and easy insertion of the
bezel, shield and reflector arrangement.
